    Summary

    Since she started at St Anne’s private prep school, Lexa has prided herself on her ability to fly below the radar, even if she sometimes is forced to waitress her classmates’ socialite events. That all changes the moment she comes to the attention of Clarke Griffin, the princess of the upper east side, as wealthy as she is beautiful and used to getting her own way.

    Determined to shake off the hold of her over bearing mother, Clarke presents Lexa with a proposal that she can’t turn down: pretend to date her and she will make sure Lexa never has to waitress again.

    Summary

    WARNING: I CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH. THIS IS ANGSTY!

    The story was inspired by a song from an Irish pub rock band "Ghost from the Barrow"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7DN2ivRMKk

    Listen to the song, it will tell you more or less what is going to happen although I am expanding on the story. There is some fluff in the first few chapters, I'll mark it in the Chapter notes when the angst begins. First 2-3 chapters are going to be "safe" Also, there might be SOME relief at the end.

    I'll be up front though: BOTH Lexa and Clarke die mid-story. DON'T READ IF YOU DON'T WANT TO SEE THAT. Also please don't hate me too much - reviews would be appreciated even if it's mostly crying and bitching over the unfairness of life. Just be kind to me and remember the fluff I'm writing in other stories :))))

    Summary

    Their love begins as it ends: beneath a tree that bears their names, amidst birds that sing their heartache, and dusted in golden leaves whose fleeting touch is as soft and lingering as their last kiss.

    Or: a vague period drama where they have loved one another since childhood, and there’s only one thing that stands in the way of their happiness: everything.

    Summary

    Clarke was accustomed to the universe dealing her a crappy hand, but it’s safe to say a naked stranger landing in her yard during a freak thunderstorm wasn’t on her bingo card.
